] English Premier League Manchester United are about to sign Japanese goalkeeper prospect Zion Suzuki (20, Urawa Reds), the British Daily Mirror reported on the 7th (Korean time).
Daily Mail, citing Japanese media Sponichi, explained, “Manchester United has been observing Suzuki since 2017, and is trying to sign him in the summer transfer market.”
According to this, Manchester United offered a transfer fee of £5 million for Suzuki. If the transfer is completed, it is the highest transfer fee in Japanese J-League history, exceeding the transfer fee of £4.5 million recorded when Japanese national striker Kyoko Furuhashi transferred from Vissel Kobe to Scotland Celtic in July 2021.
The Daily Mail added that “the deal is almost complete and may be announced soon.”
Suzuki is a mixed-race soccer player born to a Ghanaian father and a Japanese mother.
He is 190 cm tall and is highly evaluated for his build-up ability as well as his ability to make saves using long limbs.
He built his career by joining the Urawa Reds youth team in 2013, and then made his professional debut in the Urawa Reds uniform in 2021.
In addition, starting with the Japanese under-15 national team in 2016, he was consistently selected for the national team by age group, and last year he was selected for the adult national team and made his debut in the E-1 Championship.
Several European clubs have already observed Suzuki, including Manchester United. Starting with the 2017 Under-17 World Cup, Manchester United also dispatched scouts when the Japan Under-22 national team went to Europe last month. At that time, Suzuki had a parade of saves against the Netherlands and was well received.메이저사이트
Manchester United have not re-signed goalkeeper David De Gea. If you renew the contract, you can continue your career in the team, but negotiations on renewal are difficult. Manchester United’s offer to De Gea is a pay cut and no guarantee of a first-choice goalkeeper.
At the same time, news of the transfer market raises the possibility of a breakup with De Gea. According to the British Guardian, Inter Milan has officially offered a transfer fee of £39 million for the signing of goalkeeper Andre Onana. Onana is the first priority, and the renewal of the contract with De Gea is accepted as a subordinate priority.
